Everton are reportedly interested in signing Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik this summer in a move that would see Carlo Ancelotti organise a reunion with the Polish ace – and Toffees fans have reacted on Twitter.
Ancelotti moved to Everton towards the end of 2019 from Napoli, where he worked alongside 26-year-old Milik. The 49-time Poland international has scored 12 goals this season, but has netted 49 in 106 games since his move from Ajax.
The report claims Everton are interested in forming a reunion between the Merseyside club and Ancelotti. Indeed, Everton are said to be willing to pay £31million, according to Area Napoli, but Napoli want as much as £44million.
Everton are not the only side interested in signing the former Bayer Leverkusen star, though. They may face competition for the striker from north London duo Tottenham and Arsenal – Italian outlet CalcioNapoli24 have claimed.
The Toffees are likely to be after a striker in the summer, having already been linked with Lazio superstar Ciro Immobile. The club have fsiled to replace Romelu Lukaku since his departure, with Cenk Tosun and Moise Keane failing to live up to the hype.
Everton supporters have reacted on Twitter to the reported news that the club are looking to raid Ancelotti’s old side to lure Milik to Goodison Park – and many fans feel as though he would be a good signing.
He’d be an immense signing imo, a top quality goal scorer
